Great piece of news from Warminster Branch
Every year at The Minster Church of Saint Denys in Warminster the town puts on a Christmas tree display, for about three days. Each tree is provided and decorated by individual charities, schools, businesses and even people. There is no prizes or incentives we all just do it. We have been doing it for as long as I remember (7 years) and before that.
This year there was about a hundred trees and its quite an impressive display. So its an honour to be mentioned in the Warminster Journal and to have a picture published.
Attached are scans of the newspaper cuttings and a copy of the poem mentioned.
Nature created a flower,
With petals of brilliant red.
Who’d have thought such a beautiful flower
Would be used to remember the dead.
For when all the guns have stopped firing, and there was only the mud and the rain
God sends down his little red flowers
To cover the lads who remain
So remember every November,
When we hold our Remembrance day
Of the lads who lie ‘neath the Poppies
And the price that they had to pay.
